Pak reluctant to challenge decision to release LeT chief in HCJune 3rd, 2009 - 9:49 pm ICT by ANI

New Delhi, June 3 (ANI): India has expressed disappointment over the release of terror outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba chief Hafeez Saeed to Pakistani envoy in New Delhi, Shahid Malik, who met Indian Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon today.
While assuring India on looking into the legal aspects of Saeed’s release, the Pakistani envoy reportedly remained non-committal and has made no promises about the Pakistan Government filing a review petition challenging High Court order releasing the LeT chief.
In a meeting, which lasted more than 20 minutes, Malik informed Menon about the action Pakistani Government is taking against the perpetrators of 26/11 Mumbai attacks, including Hafeez Saeed.
Pakistani envoy asked India to provide the court verified copies of the 26/11 evidence. Sources said that court verified copies are in Marathi and it could be only given to Pakistan once they are translated, which has been conveyed to Malik.
Later Menon told reporters: “We have consistently said we would like stable, peaceful prosperous Pakistan as our neighbor and we will work towards that end but so long as there is terrorism against India it works against those goals but we will continue to work to these ends”.
Both India and the United States registered a strong protest against Saeed’s release. (ANI)
